Weekday Wrap Up

What have you been listening to this week?! Here’s a brief update on what has been going through the headphones of some of our staff members!

Assistant Program Director Jacob Richards
WHITE LUNG. This feminist punk band just dropped a new album called Deep Fantasy, and it’s already looking to be one of my favorite punk releases of the year. Is has the same urgency and aggression as Perfect Pussy’s march release, Say Yes to Love (my #1 punk album of the year so far) but with a refreshing and impassioned sense of clarity. Also, the Needledrop just turned my on to an EP from a band called Kiddy Pool? The EP is literally titled Super Pony Perv Plus and it includes songs such as: “Moms and Their Blonde College Age Daughters”, as well as family favorite, “I Guh Guh Got A$$bergers From a Toilet Seat”. It’s electronic/surf/noise madness and it makes me really happy. *not for the faint of heart* Read More…

Mac DeMarco – Passing Out Pieces (Video)

Mac Demarco has come out with a new video for his song “Passing Out Pieces” from his album Salad Days that came out on April 1st. The video starts off with a simple disagreement, then things get real weird real fast. There’s a couple murders and a baby with lettuce for a head, yet the song is oddly cheerful. Kids, let this be a lesson to NEVER EVER pour bleach on your cigs. Check out the video after the jump. NSFW! Read More…
